2019 Pathology Review Hematopathology, Head and Neck Pathology and Fine Needle Aspirations for the General Pathologist (CME VIDEOS)


About This CME Teaching Activity ▼

This CME activity is designed to provide a practical review of hematopathology, head and neck pathology, molecular diagnosis and fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). Faculty discuss basic to advanced techniques, pitfalls and pearls to pathologic diagnosis. A variety of case reviews emphasize the didactic presentations to round out the program.

Target Audience ▼

This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate pathologists.

This CME activity was planned and produced in accordance with the ACCME Essential Areas and Elements.

Educational Objectives ▼


At the completion of this CME activity, subscribers should be able to:

  • Recognize the different types of tissue fragments in FNAB specimens; recognize several cytomorphologic patterns of FNAB specimens; and render a diagnosis based on a pattern recognition of FNAB specimen.
  • Recognize the basic architectural patterns seen in thyroid aspirates and be able to identify and diagnose common benign and malignant thyroid lesions.
  • Recognize the basic architectural pattern seen with salivary gland aspirates and be able to identify and diagnose common benign and malignant salivary gland lesions.

  • Apply strategies for integrating Molecular and Genetic testing into routine clinical practice.
  • Achieve a better understanding of Salivary Gland Pathology in the Molecular Era.
  • Recognize lesions of the Sinonasal tract and differentiate bad actors from benign lesions.
  • Achieve a more practical approach to Lymphoid Disorders in Blood and Bone Marrow.
  • Differentiate Mucosal Lesions of the Head and Neck.
  • Understand age-based normal lymphoid parameters.
  • Learn key features/clues to unique lymphoid disorders in blood and bone marrow.
  • Appreciate new WHO 2016 criteria and testing recommendations for acute + chronic lymphoid neoplasms.
  • Understand progress in AML classification.
  • Develop list of required tests in AML, MDS, MDS/MPN and MPN.
  • Recognize newly proposed AML subtypes and newly proposed entities for other categories of myeloid neoplasms.
  • Appreciate key new molecular tests essential in the evaluation of myeloid neoplasms.
